Your Card Elaine!

Happy Monday,

Last week my new feature proved really popular, well its time for weeks 2!  The idea is, for those who missed it, I will pick a name form the comments of the previous week on Sunday and make a card for that person!  Then if you email me on I will post the card to you, simple!

Today's card was made specially for  Elaine, now Elaine is a fellow member of the Hobbycutz Design Team however this is, honestly, a coincidence.  Elaine's blog can be found HERE she is a fantastic stamper whom I could learn a few things from.  I was really tempted to make a card that was heavy on stamping however I thought it was best to stick to what I'm known for die cutting!

 Again Elaine was randomly selected by Mr Next Door.

This card is made with 9 die cuts using the square section from Spellbinders Adorning Squares foam mounted onto a sheet of green PMD cardstock.  I love the tiled effect this gives although I had to add some pearls it wouldn't be one of my cards without a couple of pearls!
